His performance over the weekend put Woods in the top spot in the world for the first time since 2010. It was his longest break ever from holding that title, according to the PGA website. After injuries, personal situations and general health problems wracked Woods’ career over the past few years, it was unsure he would ever be able to reaclaim No.1.

"It's a byproduct of hard work, patience and getting back to winning golf tournaments," Woods said, as posted on "I know I can be where I'm contending in every event, contending in major championships and being consistent day in and day out -- if I got healthy. That was the first step in the process. Once I got there, then my game turned."

Rickie Fowler trailed Woods by two shots in the final round, but was unable to outcompete him. Even hitting two balls in the water was insufficient to topple his ever present optimism — and the thrill of sinking a 40-foot birdie putt. "I was swinging it well. I made a few putts, and trying to put a little pressure on them, let them know I was there," Fowler said, as posted on
